Special | Summary 16

I have promised to do more summary's last time. So I will. Here is another summary in games... Last time I discussed the Steam sale and last E3. Now I will point my attention to games I am (still) looking forward to. And games that were displayed on other shows.

CONTRAST: A game that was shown on the PAX of this year. It will be released in the last quarter of this year. For PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360. In this game you use the shadows to travel trough the map/levels. Because you can go from full human towards a shadow. And then follow the shadows on walls, etc. F1 2013: I have owned F1 2010, the first new F1 game that was made by Codemasters. It was okay, but it couldn't reach the level of EA's F1 series or the Grand Prix series from Infogrames and Geoff Crammond. And that while GRID was cool. F1 2013 should be a bit more like the F1 series from EA. With one major point: be able to drive the classic formula 1 cars. Me as a fan just love that idea. But I hope this part in the Codemasters franchise will be better then the first couple of parts. It will come on the 8th of October for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. SPLINTER CELL BLACKLIST: Is a game I could almost buy blind folded (like I have with GTA titles). Since the last part of the franchise: Conviction I'm re-hooked to this title. After the terrible things in Double Agent. And it seems that Ubisoft is found the way. Because Splinter Cell is now the blueprint in more then one way for other titles (even outside the Ubisoft games). This part has some new weapons, gadgets and moves. And is already on sale since the last week of August, available for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and WiiU. Hopefully I can upload my review of this game soon. SHADOW WARRIOR: this game is getting a reboot just like Duke Nukem Forever was getting last year. Major difference between the two ? The original release period from the game there are based on? No both in the mid 90's. The difference is that Shadow Warrior is expected to be good. The images I DID see, confirmed that. The publisher for this reboot did already publish a remastered version from Shadow Warrior back in July of this year on PC and MAC. And are responsible for (publishing) Hotline Miami, Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edit. and Serious Sam 3 BFE. It will be released this quarter on PC, PS4 and Xbox One... KINGDOM UNDER FIRE II: this game should have been already released last year and the year before. The game has also not been shown on the last E3, or any other show. Is it still in progress ? Yes it is, it has the status TBA 2013. So hopefully we will hear more about this title before the end of the year. Because the last video is from October last year. When it will come, it will be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. GTA V (PC): the new installment is now a bit more then one week away from us. The PC version however will be released somewhere around December this year. Confirmation about this is still to come from Rockstar. But that is the discussion/leaking that is going on at Rockstar's Social Club.
